Handling Loads

The 1-day practical training course ‘Safe Moving of Loads’ is intended for employees who have to lift and move loads with the help of an overhead crane. During this training they learn this in a correct, safe and
responsible way to do. This training is both basic and refresher course and will be concluded with a DELTA exam. Until 18 October 2016 this course could also be concluded with an SSVV Training Guide (SOG) exam. There a 2-day course VVL-h (Safely Moving Loads with Hand Tools) with SOG exam has taken its place.


DELTA Safety Training also offers the ‘Banksman / Nogepa 1.9A’ training, this is a 3-day training for the ‘Banksman’ certificate. This certificate gives an exemption for the ‘SOG BVL and VVL-H’ certificates within the (petro) chemical industry in NL and can therefore be followed instead of these courses. For an amount of (from) € 885.00 you will no longer need the BVL and VVL-H certificate.
